    As I was fixing up my pallets on my i.prestiges I found one with an interesting sticker on it. This one frame seems a bit heavier then the rest and it's paint is a lot finer and seems to be of higher quality. I was wondering if you guys think this is a real PT57E also has the H22 code on it or is this just a standard i.prestige mid plus?

    You know how Donnay manufactured the PS frame for Wilson(temporarily), Wilson manufactured I prestiges for head for a while. You lucked into one of those frames.

    This is regular i.prestige. Every i.prestige has this code under the pallets.
    PT57E=same mold as i.prestige but much lighter to allow further customization

    No it doesn't, I have had over 20 i.prestiges and have changed all of their pallets and none of them have this code on the hairpin, the paint looks and feels a little different also so I don't think you are correct. I am very aware of PT57E and various other pro stock frames produced in lighter state for customization but this is code is not on every frame like you just said that is for sure.

    Just FWIW I have two liquid metal frames with H22 codes. One is a prestige MP, the other was my moms LM 8 oversized.

    Hey there just removed pallets from PT57A and found same sticker on hairpin (H22)
    I thought Pt57A was from Pro Tour mold not I Prestige

    Maybe that's the part number for the pallets?

    I had a couple of them that were standard retail frames with similar codes.
    Was there an actual pro room pt57e does anyone know or did that just come out when players who used the I series
    didn't want to give up their intelli fibres?
